Skybox Security CEO to Speak at Infosecurity Europe

Skybox Security, the leading provider of risk analytics for cyber security, today announced that CEO Gidi Cohen will be speaking about security risk analytics at Infosecurity Europe. During the three-day conference, Skybox Security (Stand E10) will also be hosting several sessions at its booth exploring issues and trends in security, including the recent Heartbleed Bug. Infosecurity Europe is one of the leading information security events, providing educational sessions that attract security professionals from every segment of the industry.

In “Risk Analytics: Using Your Data to Solve Security Challenges,” Cohen will explore the popular approaches for IT security and why common methodologies are no longer effective at reducing the attack surface. He will also discuss practical ways to leverage security data and risk analytics tools to shrink the attack surface every day.

“There is a huge imbalance between the time and effort it takes a security manager to find and close attack vectors, versus the time it takes an attacker to exploit a security gap,” said Cohen. “A security team may need weeks to scan a network and fix vulnerabilities, while attacks can be successful in minutes. Time is of the essence, and risk analytics convert security data into actionable intelligence fast.”

  • What: Risk Analytics: Using Your Data to Solve Security Challenges
  • When: Thursday, May 1, 1:20-1:45 p.m.
  • Where: Technical Theater
